Question

Element X is strongly electropositive and element y is strongly electronegative. Both are univalent. The compound formed will be
  1. X - Y


Solution

The correct option is B
Strongly electropositive elements tend to lose electrons due to relatively low ionization potentials to form cations (X+) and strongly electronegative elements tend to gain electrons to form anions (Y). Hence the bond formed between them is predominantly ionic in nature.
